Multiple sclerosis When the immune system goes out of control
“Sometimes I have poor vision.” “When I walk longer distances my legs get tired more quickly.” “I have great fear about the future.”
This or a similar experience is what people with multiple sclerosis report.
Those affected develop tremendous psychological strain. They feel helpless in the face of more and more muscle areas losing their function. For unknown reasons the immune system destroys the myelin sheaths of neurons and demolishes them bit by bit. The mobility of the muscles becomes increasingly impaired. Entire areas of the skin fall numb.
In almost all cases life becomes increasingly restricted. It doesn’t matter whether multiple sclerosis comes in cycles or progresses gradually.
What is the Vedic medicine point of view on multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, multiple sclerosis starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of multiple sclerosis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) disturb the immune system. Each multiple sclerosis patient knows that stress as well as an unstable nervous system can serve as a trigger for further attacks.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s multiple sclerosis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, hay fever is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of multiple sclerosis, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of the nervous system can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures to balance the immune system and the nervous system tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can slow the progression of the unnatural destruction of nerve tissues.
